Why I love this piece: Fashion designer Christian Lacroix brings the energy of his unmatched colour style to home furnishings with this beautiful tempest rug. Even though the pattern and idea is really simple, this rug is a stand-out item for me because of it's other-worldly quality. When I look at it, I can see landscapes and nature; the soft curves of a hilltop and the bright, glowing hues of a sunset. It's almost like a piece of art under your feet. And who would want to be "under rug swept" in beauty?
